About this Cook
Hi! I'm recently married. I grew up in British Columbia, and now live in California with my husband.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE baking deserts...i have a major sweet tooth and anything with chocolate is great! I also have been trying a lot of new recipes, mainly flavourful stir-frys and other asian/indian flavours as well as my favourite..Italian...anything pasta is great for me :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year at Christmas we go crazy with the baking and make all our faourites treats to eat all season long...its great!
My cooking triumphs
Trying new things, and having them work out. I love it when others enjoy my food...I am especially happy when my husband totally likes something and can't get enough! He once requested cajun tasting chicken, so i looked up the spices invovled, mixed them together and he LOVED it, now whenever we grill chicken he requests the cajun spices!
My cooking tragedies
I've had lots....but the biggest one is when i made these double chocolate cookies and put 1/2 Cup of salt in.(Dont ask why) They were TERRIBLE. very hard. very dry. VERY salty, and burnt.

Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert
YUM! this was awesome...used a little less margarine in the base, a few more chocolate chips in the fudge, but otherwise, followed directions exactly. We had it for about a week (just 2 of us!) and it just seemed to get better every day as the fudge sauce flavours really came together. will definitely make again!

Mango Salsa
mmmm, a delicious and fresh salsa! I added some red onion, left out the jalapeno, and added some crushed red pepper. Next time I will cut down on the lemon/lime (too strong), and try out some balsamic vinegar as someone previously suggested.

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad
This was great! Very customizable and easy to prepare - I used more apple, and grapes, almonds, celery, craisins, and fat free plain yogurt in place of mayo, and grilled the chicken with a curry rub. I also added more curry powder and pepper for some more spice..served in pita bread...what a nice change from the regular 'bagel lunch' :)
